    I’m not much of a poetry person, but I do like the concept of Poetry in Motion. I did enjoy some of the poems in this book, but many of them just didn’t interest me that much.

    I enjoyed the variety and accessibility of the poetry and the reminder I will that words travel with us both literally and figuratively.

    I'm a huge fan of the Poetry in Motion program. It was always fun to read the little gems of poetry, smooshed there between the PSA announcements about keeping your headphones turned down low and the reminder not to leave your umbrella behind. (These poems were particularly appreciated when I'd forget my book at home.) Everything included in this anthology is mostly sections from long, famous works or lesser known works by famous poets.

(These poems were particularly appreciated when I'd forget my book at home.) Everything included in this anthology is mostly sections from long, famous works or lesser known works by famous poets. I think the anthology would have been better if they'd included the poems written by regular people - particularly children. I saw the poem below on a bus in Denver, and have never forgotten it: I have these two cats, Pounce and Buster and they are nice and black and white. But they are black at the top, and they sleep on the stairs at night, so people step on them. -Ryan Jones, 13 What a gem, right? Would have been perfect, smooshed there between Gwendolyn Brooks and Robert Frost.

    Was one of those "on a whim" buys and it turned out to be much better than I anticipated, for the most part. Still there were quite a few poems that didn't really strike a chord with me.
